This has attracted a nice field of progressive fillies and though WE'LL GO WALKING will need to improve on her debut victory on this track there are good reasons to believe she can do so and take this. Jim Bolger's filly was totally unfancied for that victory but ran out a very impressive winner despite showing her inexperience and a classic entry suggests she's held in high regard. Bolger also runs Cleofila, who contested Group races after her debut success last season but didn't run particularly well on her reappearance. Caponata shouldn't be inconvenienced by the lack of a run as she won her first two races last season though she ran poorly behind today's rival Aloof in a Group 3 here in September and the latter looks a threat to all.
